Night Shade News & Notes

  • Strangelove for Science Fiction reviews The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi – "The economics and politics, expressed through the lives of the characters rather than as lectures, open out in ever-more complicated vistas. The fictionalized future Thai Kingdom is full of life, with new sights, sounds, and flavors around every corner. Bacigalupi's first novel, this is easily one of the best science fiction novels of the year."
  • Sacramento Book Review reviews The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – "Editor John Joseph Adams (of The Living Dead and Federations) has a knack for assembling truly eclectic and satisfying collections, and considering some of the names involved — Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Stephen Baxter, Anne Perry, and Anthony Burgess, among many others — he’s done it again with The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes."
